Eight programmes on the background of the Roman world
2: The Roman Army and the Frontiers of Empire by PROFESSOR ERIC BIRI. EY of the University of Durham
For two hundred years the Roman Army insisted on its other ranks being unmarried, so that it was not necessary for the government to pay for wives and children. But the Army was astonishingly modern in its methods of training and administration, and in its duties along the frontiers of the Empire there are many analogies with security duties today.
With readings by TOM KILGOUR
Produced by Adrian Johnson
Second broadcast
Professor Alan Watson on Roman Law and the Family: Sept. 11
A reading list can be obtained by sending a stamped addressed foolscap envelope to The Romans, Further Education Department [address removed]

Fourteen illustrated talks by ROGER FISKE
11: The Bigger the Better
It was the Parisian fondness for the stupendous in opera which began the cult of the colossal. both as regards length and loudness: a fondness satisfied first by Rameau in the 1740s. and then by Spontini and Meyerbeer in the early nineteenth century. And it was a Frenchman. Berlioz, who began the-same trend in music for the con. cert-hall, and the use of orchestra! devices whose effect was predominantly dramatic. not musical.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
